Interesting... Did god really sit out for this long and then decided it's time to appear ?

Out of all the people that have ever lived, 99% lived after the time of Jesus.

Is it strange that I believe that the universe has to be older than this?

He obv had to wait for someone who could speak Hebrew to show up. Stromatolites and algae were not interested in the commandments, and what apples they couldn't eat.

Why didn't he show 200k years ago? Or at least show up when we started inventing other gods to tell us we're wrong.

The point is that God waited billions of years to create humans capable of cognition and then send them guidance through a number of prophets that failed to guide humanity and all this always in the same nation/geographical area.

Couldn't God create humans from the get go and guide them himself?

What a novel idea, to suggest god as a separate entity from the rest of the universe.

And another to suggest that human life, is the only substantiated life this universe has seen.

Especially those of you who support evolution. Have you considered yet that there was development and evolution of consciousness linked to our physical evolution?

Life is to be experienced. There are plenty of existences other than being human,... Although naturally those of us here today are human for a reason, it wasnt always the case and certainly doesn't have to be.

What was life like as a rock? Or as bacteria? Or a dinosaur? Monkey?

Since day one this has been a constant never ending big bang of creation and experience. If you think this is only about humans, you're seeing this from a narrow perspective. This great experiment is not exclusive to us.

Very potentially will come a day that genetics or outside involvement lead to another transformation, and historically the new status quo will look back on us as if we were cavemen.

OP honestly if you are interested to study these things may be of use to look up concepts outside of mainstream religion. Sometimes in these types of threads i pick up on the frame of mind that:

"mainstream religion xyz is nonsensical, therefore atheism"

Atheism is still another network of subjective belief and faith, only pointed in the other direction than theists. And still doesn't answer any real questions.

IMO if you want to explore such mysteries - such as was there life or another universe prior to the big bang - you must first free yourself from limiting thoughts and belief systems. Such as, if your pastor/professor/parents/etc would refuse you to believe potential in such a concept, because it's outside of their belief system.

If god wasnt real why would there be movies about him? - checkmate atheist

also isnt it somewhat bad to use the term "creation of the universe"

So method do you suggest we use to arrive at such knowledge?

How do you know the universe begun to exist and was created? Because a book says it?

Well if you use the word:
create = implies something/somebody crated it
started to exist = started to exist for whatever reason

So one can hardly use the term created without implying something mystical i guess?

Also most of the things you know probably are out of books or have been said to you by others that read them in books.

(anyhow i thought it was rather clear that i was beeing sarcastic?)

No, in fact, someday, we might find out that the universe is infinite. We could just be one of a continuum of multi-verses that extrapolates 'itself' out to near infinity. A new concept being discussed is every black hole containing an entirely new universe. Then you have different dimensions, etc. Time itself possibly doesn't exist. The way we measure 'time' is nothing more than an illusion.

It's not like he was just a bored human waiting billions of years for someone to talk to.
